Dayum! 3 dollars…For Reals?!

By January 27th, 202110 Comments

Seriously…sometimes I need to back away from my laptop. I’m such a PJ.

While browsing on, I ran across this thread:

Dayum! 3 dollars...For Reals?!Ingredients: Water, Stearamidopropyl, Dimethylamine, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl alcohol, Shea butter, Mango Seed Butter, Cholesterol, Soybean Oil, Safflower Oil,Wheat GermOil, aloe VeraExtract, Fragrance, Vitamin E, Methyl Paraben Propyl Paraben, Phosphoric Acid Sodium Chloride DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA, Yellow #5, Yellow #6

Apparently, lots of curly divas are using Lustrasilk SheaButter Cholesterol as a leave-in. Yes, the Lustrasilk from the Ethnic Section of Sally’s Beauty Supply! I used this back in the day as a DT, but never thought to leave it in. I don’t know why I stopped using it….maybe I thought it was too cheap to be good, lol. Anyway, curlies are using this as a leave-in, and getting shine, body, and definition. It’s protein and mineral oil free and costs less than 5 dollars. I’m literally going to get dressed and run to Sally’s as soon as I publish this post!

I plan to try this in place of DevaOne this weekend. Have any of you tried it? If you have, or are planning to, please let me know your results! I’d love to have a 3 dollar staple.

Later Gators,

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    lol, Natakue, don’t blame me!!! I ran across this last night…innocently searching the boards 😉

    I’m about to do my hair in a minute. If you try it, please let me know your results!!

    Are you still using Greg Juice?

    Shelly, sorry. My PJ is in rare form lately. Hopefully she’ll calm down soon.

    Angelique, I’ll keep you posted! I think I’ll do it tonight so that I can post results tomorrow.

  • CurleeMeex says:

    yes! i used to love this stuff…I’m not sure why i stopped using it either :S

    I remember leavig a little in with my twists and it made my hair really soft. But, too much will make it crunchy.

    OMG…my head is spinning with all the new products!!!!!

  • Gigi says:

    I used this as a leave in years ago when i was natural. it worked wonderful.

  • Twitchy says:

    I haven’t used this as a leave-in, but I tried it as a DT. It was ok, not great. If you go to the dollar store, you can get it for less than $3.

    I used this as a DT when I was relaxed. It didnt work as a DT for me as a curly, but I’m def going to try it as a leave-in. I think I still have mine lying around…thanks nikki!
